Update for December 2016

Christmas SkullWishing all my readers a Happy Holidays and New Year from Tarn Aeluin. Update is a big word at Tarn Aeluin!. After nearly 2 years, I’ve re-enabled comments. I’m hoping that Akismet and other features will control the spam. We’ll see – just this year alone I have almost 70,000 spam comments blocked with commenting completely off!

In 2016 we have just under 250K hacking attempts blocked and about 1.5 million unique page views.

In other improvements we have CSS, JS, and other programming optimizations including an upgrade to WordPress 4.7. We are also working on an iOS and Android app for our blog so you do not have to be online to read our articles, especially the developer tip articles.

Looking Ahead to 2017

We are looking forward to our first book publishing in 2017 as well as continued research into the latest computer science trends, starting with CES 2017 (and of course our coverage of that event). We will continue to be 100% ad free in 2017 an for the foreseeable future as well.

Best of luck in the new year!
